The band members were pretty tight. They probably considered themselves brothers if not blood brothers. They were one of the first biracial bands. They had seen a lot of racism growing up in the south. Using the term brother to connect with another guy you are close to was pretty common then and not shallow, like some panhandler coming up to you and saying "hey brother". Our tight group of friends used to call each other "bro" all the time. Also probably to honor Duane.

I have the Atlanta International Pop Festival release and the intro the mc goes into a story of how the human egg is fertilized. Unlike what he learned in school the sperm don't make a mad run to the egg and then one is in. "The sperm surround the egg and twirl it with there tales at a rate of 8 times per minute, in this primordial dance. And this actually happens you know, 8 is the sign of infinity it looks like this, this you know, and thats where we all come from this dance. And life isn't a race. Its not competing with anyone it's playing together like all men play together. And these are the Allman's and they play together, Allman Brothers All MEN".
Should have checked youtube first
